Welcome back to Marvel Mondays, where Leah gushes about all things Peggy Carter and contemplates cutting her hair so as to better cosplay our favorite leading lady.
This week on Agent Carter was less action and more exposition, giving us a little breather after the shocker that came at the end of last episode. Tuesday’s episode also saw the return of Howard Stark, genius, billionaire, and everyone’s favorite scoundrel.
…well, perhaps not everyone’s favorite. Howard Stark is a pretty polarizing character, even in the fictional Marvel world. Today’s review is going to dissect what we saw of Howard, look at Peggy’s fantastic upbraiding of him, and take a guess at why it is that many viewers — and Peggy herself — just can’t bring themselves to dislike Howard, despite all his faults.
